The Witcher 3 Contains A Hilarious Monty Python Easter Egg (VIDEO)
It is no secret at this point that CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the studio’s most well-received video games, with the title’s popularity helping to spawn an upcoming Netflix TV adaptation, as well as drawing a not insignificant amount of ire from the series creator. A lesser known fact about the latest numbered entry in the series, though, is that the game contains, of all things, a Monty Python Easter egg, and it’s actually pretty hilarious.
The news comes by way of Reddit, wherein a fan playing the game discovered a not so subtle reference to Monty Python within Geralt of Rivia’s latest outing. The Easter egg points in particular to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, to the film’s killer rabbit that the characters find near the cave of Caerbannog. “Death awaits you all! With nasty, big, pointy teeth!” Check out the original movie clip featuring the origin of the killer rabbit below:
CD Projekt RED could have gone in many different directions as far as Monty Python Easter eggs go, though the killer rabbit Easter egg was likely a bit easier to pull off than, say, riding a make belief horse while hitting coconuts together, or battling against a black knight who ends up losing all his limbs. Sometimes it’s the small, subtle Easter eggs that help make a game into what it is, and CD Projekt RED hit it out of the park with this one. Here’s hoping we get to see the killer rabbit at some point in the upcoming Netflix TV adaptation.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
